Jim Ross discussed his thoughts on the Ultimate Warrior and what it was like dealing with him during the latest edition of Grilling JR. Here are the highlights:
Dealing with the Ultimate Warrior:
“I think he was a giant pain in the ass from day one. And again, ‘Well, JR is speaking bad of the dead.’ Well, OK, look, Conrad asked me a question, we’re talking about a journey here and the Warrior plays a part in that journey to some degree. He had a massive ego, knowing that he was not highly skilled, knowing that his number one selling point was his physique and his charisma that largely was created through music and lights and pyro and things of that nature, and he wasn’t a good person in my view, that’s my opinion.”
The lawsuit he filed against WWE:
“He wasn’t a good guy. Anytime there was a lawsuit with him involved, I always was cheering for the other guys, because I just thought he was looking for a payday and it was as simple as that, and had little to no respect for our business.”
